Image result for Nottingham Forest v NewcastleForget about Rafa getting the sack ... Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is now odds-on to be the next Premier League manager to leave their position.

According to Sky Bet's odds, Mourinho is now 10/11 to go following Monday night's 3-0 defeat at home to Tottenham, a significant difference from the 9/2 price available on Mark Hughes in second-favourite.

United have lost two of their opening three encounters of the season, with victory over Leicester being followed by defeats to Brighton and most-recently Spurs.

Pressure appears to be mounting on the Portuguese coach, who stormed out of his post-match press conference after demanding more respect.

When it was suggested to Mourinho many fans had walked out before the end, he stated: "I would do the same, losing 3-0 and taking two hours from here to the centre of Manchester."

He then went on the offensive, suggesting those in the media questioning him were orchestrating a campaign.

"Keep trying. Keep trying. Keep trying. We lost last season here against Sevilla and were booed because we deserved it, because we were not good," he said.

Next Premier League manager to leave:-

Jose Mourinho - 10/11
Mark Hughes - 9/2
Rafa Benitez - 5/1
Claude Puel - 6/1
Manuel Pellegrini - 9/1
Javi Gracia - 11/1
Neil Warnock - 11/1
